The Office for Community Involvement at Montana State University is a resource that connects MSU students with area non-profits, school and governmental organizations as volunteers, interns, or work-study staff. The Bozeman Bike Kitchen has partnered with the Office for Community Involvement (OCI) to offer up a part-time position for an MSU student.
The position being offered is entitled Bozeman Bike Kitchen Campus Corps Member and means the student will be working as a team with other Campus Corps Members in the OCI which includes participating in community service projects, OCI events and activities and representing the OCI and promoting volunteerism on the MSU Campus. Supervision will be provided on campus by the OCI Program Coordinator and on site at the Bozeman Bike Kitchen by an appointed member of the Board of Directors.
Over the course of the summer we've had some very gracious donors, both financial and physical. We appreciate all donation whether big or small but wanted to pay some special attention to a couple organizations having helped us recently.
A special thank you is in order for the Gallatin Valley Bike Club for their donation of a Park Tool PK-63 Professional Tool Kit. Previous to the acquisition of this we were operating our bike shop without many necessary tools and had to turn away people with some complex bicycle problems.
Secondly the New Belgium Brewing Company teamed up with a couple local pubs, The Pourhouse and Spectators Bar and Grill for a well-attended community bicycle ride and grill-out called the Tour de Pour. New Belgium was kind enough to donate a beautiful cruiser bicyle as a raffle prize and the pubs were kind enough to sell raffle tickets as well as match a good chunk of the money raised from the raffle. Special thanks goes to the owner of Spectators for providing participants with a free BBQ and free Fat Tire as well as the matched raffle donations.

We are a cooperative cycling center dedicated to making the use of bicycles as transportation and fun possible for all members of the Bozeman community.
